Summer Sarabande Soirée
At a Bonhams' estate auction I recently won the tableware collection belonging to the screen siren who taught Steve and the rest of us how to whistle.
The French design happens to be my own long-loved pattern. So, with enough matching plates and bowls to open a bistro, it was time for a party.
I made everyone don color-coordinated spork necklaces, smile and say 'Summer Sarabande Soirée!'
Over Ruilly (my new favorite Burgundy wine), sangria and Mediterranean-inspired tapas fare, dear friends came together on a cloudless August evening ... to meet, mingle and make plans for our next party.
Santé Lauren Bacall!
